Christmas is about customs and rituals, which is why there is no better way to celebrate than with a traditional 4-course Christmas Day lunch. Made with the finest seasonal ingredients, choose from starters such as lobster and Cornish crab salad or cinnamon crispy duck, followed by a Laurent-Perrier and cranberry sorbet palate cleanser. For the main course, select from our beautifully tender Black Norfolk roast turkey, or Parmesan and herb-crusted rack of lamb, both accompanied by an assortment of perfectly cooked vegetables and sauces. To finish your festive feast, our nutmeg brulée with almond ice cream or white chocolate mousse with hazelnut sponge both cleverly capture the spirit of winter.
